It hasn’t been long since Netflix started producing their original movie, but it’s safe to say that the best Netflix movies are among the Best movies made. So here is a list of Top 10 must-watch Netflix movies that you must watch.
Director: Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia
“The platform” is a metaphorical representation of capitalism or our society in general through a clever concept. The film is set in a futuristic prison setup called The Hole. Where people are interviewed for a chance at a better life. It has hundreds of floors placed vertically, each floor housing two prisoners each, and the floor you stay in is switched randomly at a certain interval of time. Everyday floating platform filled with delicious food descends through a rectangular hole in the middle of the building and it’s the only chance for food for the entire day.
The prisoners on the top floor have access to a feast but by the time it reaches down the platform is always empty and the people on the lower floors starve and resort to eating each other or dying. On the off chance that everybody just ate a small portion, it could make it right to the base with something for every detainee. It won’t ever do.
Director: Sam Hargrave
When you think of a movie directed by Sam Hargrave and has Chris Hemsworth as the lead, you know that you’re in for an action-packed explosive treat. And that is the biggest highlight of this high-octane entertainer that will give you the thrills and the chills as it leaves nothing to the imagination.

The Old Guard
Director: Gina Prince-Bythewood
A gathering of mercenaries, all who are centuries-old immortals with the ability to recuperate themselves, discovers that somebody is onto their secret, and they should fight to secure their freedom.
Gina Prince-Bythewood’s fresh, efficient direction of this adaptation of an action-fantasy comic-book series by Greg Rucka serves the physical
component of the performances exceptionally well.
Charlize Theron playing interminable hero Andy, leader of a covert band of immortal mercenaries, Theron invests nearly as much energy engaging numerous hundreds of years’ worth of aggregated apprehension as she does cutting and dicing whole regiments of assailants.
A battle scene on a shaking freight plane between Andy (Charlize Theron) and KiKi Layne (playing Nile, a hesitant newcomer to the undying club) is a beauty. Indeed, even Andy lets out a simple saying “She cut me,” Andy later tells her right-hand man, Booker (Matthias Schoenaerts). “I think she has potential.”
Director: Michael Bay
Michael Bay’s “6 Underground” is one of the loudest and action-packed movies you’ll ever see. The movie revolves around an American billionaire and philanthropist who fakes his own death to form a secret vigilante squad to take down the bad guys the governments will not touch.
Now calling himself “One”, he recruits five other crew to join his cause as “ghosts”: Two, a spy; Three, a hitman; Four, a parkour runner and thief; Five, a doctor; and Six, a driver.
Each one, the very best at what they do have been chosen, not merely on their skills but on their unique desire to erase their pasts and hope for a fresh start.
Director: Harry Bradbeer
Enola Holmes is one of those rare films that comes along swiftly and fills us with pure delight with its balanced pace, solid political viewpoints, and hope. Enola Holmes does all this without being tied up on one.
The film is set in 1884 England where Enola lives with her mother. On her 16th birthday, she wakes up to find her mother has disappeared, leaving behind a bundle of gifts with no clear clue as to where she really went.
Soon Enola finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft who decide to send her to a finishing school to learn to be a “proper” young lady.
In denial of her brother’s wishes against hers, Enola escapes searching for her mother in London where she finds herself to be surrounded by trouble and curiosity.
We have not had a solid female criminal investigator in some time, and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple appears to be quite a while in the past. It is quite something to see how the two Holmes square off against each other as they solve crime in 19th century London.
7. Project Power
Directors: Ariel Schulman, Henry Joost
“Project Power” is a film set on the streets of New Orleans where a word has spread about a mysterious new super pill that unlocks unique superpowers in its users. The only catch is that you’ll have no idea what superpower you will be getting by taking the pill until you take it. While some may develop super-strength, bulletproof skin, and invisibility, others exhibit deadlier reactions to the pill. Despite the deadly risks the pill starts to accumulate demand and the streets get flooded with them.
But as the usage of pills started to escalate the crime rate in the city to an alarming level, a local cop teams up with a teenage dealer and a former soldier fueled by a personal secret vendetta to fight fire with fire by taking the pills themselves in order to track down and stop the people responsible for creating it.
8. The Irishman
Director: Martin Scorsese
Martin Scorsese is a name that needs no introduction. If you love a good classic Martin Scorsese film you’ll love The Irishman. It’s an all-out mobster movie that is filled with powerful thought-provoking dialogue and a splendid cast. The movie really does live up to its hype as Joe Pesci, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino all deliver performances that you will never be able to forget.
The Irishman is a mobster crime epic in size and scope, but it takes an intimate approach to history. The Kennedys, Nixon, and so forth are necessary contexts, but the function of the film’s political backdrop is its impact on the characters.
Over the course of the film, the characters find themselves thrust into a slow drowning anchor of political ambitions, with twisted morals and bring out their worst possible selves.
